View Full Version : [D&D 3.5]Warblade Iaijutsu Focus optimization

2011-01-07, 04:31 PM
I'd like to make a Warblade that uses Iaijutsu Focus in combat as a means of doing massive damage. I was going to go Factotum 1 at first level and grab Able Learner to be able to use Iaijutsu Focus, and to use maneuvers like Sapphire Nightmare Blade to get flat-footedness, but at this point, I have no idea how to optimize Iaijutsu Focus. Could I have some help?

What you need to optimize Iaijitsu Focus is a lot of attacks (eg, dual wielding + tiger claw, and even better Island in Time/Time Stand Still) and a way to always sheet your weapon. To best way to do this is to dual wield Gnome Quickrazors (RoS), which make you sheet them after every attack.

Optimizing Iajitsu Focus generally means taking 5 levels of Iajitsu Master. That's where IF damage gets crazy.

I'd prefer OA Samurai to Factotum due to better-timed feat access.
